Have you heard the term Polish hostage? Where did this come from? I created this account because for once in my life I could not find the answer to a question by researching it. I am truly curious. I've heard this term more than once. I suppose it might be inter-agency slang by, maybe, police forces or SWAT. So, Have you heard the term Polish hostage?
